How can I lower my cpu fan speed?

I've already tried to in BIOS and had no luck with Fanspeed either. What else can I do to lower it? It's running at 3400prm right now and it's annoyingly loud. My cpu is at 40C if that helps.

  1. It sounds like its working too hard tying to keep that CPU @ 40C.

    You're only option maybe using a better, after market CPU cooler.

    It looks like you've tried everything else.

  2. If your idle CPU temperature is 40C, then I would recommend upgrading to a better cooler, especially if the fan is working so hard to keep it that cool. My Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus keeps my FX-6350 at around 28C idle and I can barely even hear the fan unless I put my face right up against the case vents. Lowering the fan speeds in the BIOS should do the trick, but honestly, it might be a bad idea to do that, it could cause overheating. Are you on a desktop or a laptop?
